my senior exam classes have all lefts school for the year now so I have LOADS of free time in work for working on what I really LIKE doing!!

so, today I got a LOAD of work done on the slope dread.

a lot of neck carving & sanding, then the frets fitted.....

slope shoulder dread dreadnaught  luthier

then the holes drilled for the bolt system and finally glued it in place.


also, while the neck glue was setting, I cut a heel cap from the offcuts of the headstock so there is a little continuity between the two veneers.

tomorrow I don't have just as much free time, but it'd be nice to get the heel cap carved to match the heel and then final sanding before the first coat of varnish......
